Cargo Maintenance Hangar Opens At CVG; Creates 100 High-Paying Jobs

FEAM Aero opened a new hangar at CVG on Wedensday.

(Hebron, Ky.) - A major aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul company has opened a new hangar in northern Kentucky.  

Miami-based FEAM Aero opened its new facility at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport on Wednesday.  

The company has operated at CVG since 2015 and currently employees more than 200 technicians servicing DHL, Amazon and passenger aircraft.  

"As aviation and aircraft maintenance services continue to be in high demand, we're grateful to CVG Airport for understanding the need for our services, and for allowing this hangar to be part of the economic and innovative growth of the airport and state," said Cam Murphy, FEAM Managing Director. "Not only will this facility help us to expand our services and provide high-quality aircraft services to our clients, but this investment represents our commitment to create more jobs and build opportunities." 

The new 103,000-square-foot hangar will create more than 100 high-paying aircraft mechanic jobs with an average estimated salary over $70,000.  

The new jobs will make the CVG operation FEAM’s largest in the U.S.  

“Among CVG’s strategic goals are to grow air cargo operations, and develop available airport land, both of which are achieved with this project,” said Candace McGraw, CEO, CVG. “We’re delighted that FEAM and Lynxs chose this site to support the rapid cargo growth at CVG. We are grateful for the strong partnership and look forward to sustaining this success.”

  • The Witches of Breakout

    The Witches National Convention was held in our room last night! We found out that they made plans to turn everyone who isn't a witch into a black cat or a bat. They locked the spell they need in the Breakout EDU box. The Spell was written in magic ink, and if it stays in the box for more than 45 minutes, it will be cast! If we can open the box before the 45 minutes are up, contact with air will break the spell. Work together to unlock the boxes and undo the magic of the Witches of Breakout! Registration required; limited spots available for individuals and groups. Must register: www.lpld.lib.in.us/calendar. 5 p.m. & 7 p.m. (two sessions) Friday, Oct. 22, Lawrenceburg Main Library. 812-537-2775. Tweens and Teens. Free.
